I used to be an artist. I used to paint. I made my living with my paintings. Then one day, I sat down to paint, my hands trembled, and my eyes played tricks on me. There was something seriously wrong! I went to my doctor. A few months later, after many tests..."they" gave me the answer, you have Multiple Sclerosis. My painting days were over. I took up photography, I could still make pictures. I was happy with that, but not content.
I haven't painted for 7 years since the diagnosis. A couple of weeks ago, I bought a canvas, and some paint. I retrieved my brushes that I had tucked away lovingly...all those years ago.
I sat down and I painted, I painted this. Not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination. Nothing like I used to do...but it's a start, and for someone that has intention tremors, and vision problems, (blurred and often double vision), it's not half bad.
A small triumph.
I am taking time out from my photography blog to paint. I am also teaching my granddaughter to paint, she spends her summer school vacation days with me.
So for now, I will not be posting much on this blog.
